I only know XEmbed as a user of tabbed, so I don't know what exactly TA would need to do to make this work but it works like this:
First you start tabbed (which is an application that basically provides an empty window) and get it's xId. Then for example URxvt has the -embed <xId> option. So you run "urxvt -embed $xId" from the shell or somewhere else and you get the urxvt instance as a tab inside tabbed.
